  • Cut up the shrimp into thirds and season with Season Salt and set to the side. Make sure you keep the shells. Put shells in enough water to cover and boil until pink. Discard shells and keep the water.

  • Finely dice the onion, red pepper and jalepeno pepper.
  • Saute the onion jalepeno pepper and red pepper until soft. Sprinkle the drippings and veggies with 2 tablespoons of flour and make a roue.
  • Pour the shrimp water over the roue until smooth and creamy. Add the chopped shrimp and cook on low until shrimp turn pink. At the last minute, crumble the cooked bacon and stir into the shrimp and gravy. Remove from heat.

    Shrimp and grits to me brings back memories of New Orleans. I reduced the recipe to 2 servings and seasoned the shrimp with Cajun Seasoning. This was served over stone ground grits for a wonderful brunch. Made for *PAC Spring 2008*
